Major League soccer: D.C. United 's Ian Harkes, a homegrown midfielder whose playing time dropped significantly this season after a number of roster and lineup changes, is almost certain to leave the MLS club this winter, the Insider has learned. United did not exercise the option on his contract and has yet to extend a new offer, people familiar with the situation said this week. Harkes, 23, seems likely to join another MLS team or explore options overseas. Born in England while his father, John, was a star player, Ian has been pursuing a British passport, which would ease a move to Europe. (His paternal roots are Scottish.) Before signing with United ahead of the 2017 season, Harkes trained with English club Derby County's under-23 squad.
